Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Sometimes life can get ya in a hurry but uh
I'm just gonna take it slow now
That don't mean I ain't been working y'all
I'm working on me baby
I'm working on me darling
I'm taking some time to see
The people who keep me going
Summertime broken leisure
Down a bad line now
I'm not saying that I'm not judging now
I'm just gonna tell ya what I tell em now

[Chorus]
I've got friends and I've got family
I've got help from all the people who love me
I got friends and I've got
I got family
I got help from all the people who love me

[Verse 2]
Sometimes people try to take all they can from you but
They don't call me bubbles for nothing now
People ask my pops he'll tell them now
She gets it from me baby
She gets it from me darling
Chicago wasn't always easy
But love made the windy city breezy

[Chorus]
I've got friends and I've got family
I've got help from all the people who love me
I got friends and I got
I got family
I got help from all the people who love me
Oh yeah
Oh yeah
I know I got love
I know I got friends
I've got people
Who love me
(Mavis take us back)
(Mavis take us back)
(Mavis take us back)
(Mavis take us back)
(Mavis take us back)
(Mavis take us back)
(Working all week)
Baby
(Working all week)
Darling
(Working all week)
Baby
(Working all week)
Darling
(Working all week)
Chicago wasn't always easy
But love made the windy city breezy
I've got friends and I've got family
I've got help from all the people who love me
I got friends and I got
I got family
I got help from all the people who love me
Oh yeah
Uh huh
